How do I reduce the size of the images on my screen. I have tried moniter settings and display settings to no avail. The pixel reducer/increaser will not respond. My home page shortcuts don't have enough room and I can not access all of them. Some pages are so large I can not acces the 'next' or 'print' buttons at the bottom. I have done all the virus searches and 'cleaning' programs I have, restarted my computer, etc. This all started after the computer was turned off by someone not familiar with this computer. Help, please and thank you.

I doubt if its in Safe Mode, when in Safe Mode it tells you in the 4 corners.

The problem is probably that your resolution was changed. Right click on a blank area of your desktop and select Properties. Then go into Settings. See what the resolution is. Its probably 640x480. You need to use the slider and change that to something you prefer. If you find you can't change it it could be that your Video Adapter was changed to the default SVGA. In that case you need to change it back using the Advanced button there. You will need to know exaclty what brand and model video adapter you have. If you don't know that, check your system documentation or give is the make and model opf your PC and we'll try to help further.
